Software Overview

The following block diagram diagram shows all the software components found in QRB5165. Refer to the software reference manual for details. Typically, the robotics application uses the framework libraries to interact with the middleware.

Some important components of the multiple subsystems can be divided into

  • Multimedia (accessed via GStreamer plugins)
    • Camera
    • Video
    • Display
    • Graphics
    • Audio
  • Robotics Navigation Stack
  • ROS2
  • Qualcomm AI/ML
    • Neural Processing SDK for AI
    • TF Lite
  • Connectivity
    • Bluetooth
    • WLAN


After a basic understanding of the platform has been achieved, proceed to the Software Reference Manual for Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Development Kit for more information.

The sample projects (Coming Soon!!!) page contains sample applications that exercise the capabilities of the QRB5165 platform.
